Halfway Through My First Week With Nutrisystem

Nutrisystem Logo Well, I got through the holidays and honestly could NOT wait to begin my Nutrisystem journey!  I wasn’t sure if I would like the food but to my surprise, it is actually quite good.  There are so many options for all three meals of the day plus a dessert or snack at the end of the day. Plus, two other healthy snacks of your choosing (from the list provided) in between meals.  Then of course you will need to incorporate other fresh grocery items of your own.  I feel this is the best plan so far for me of all the things I’ve ever tried.  Sure, I need to heat or do minor preparation to the provided meals in order to eat them, but that is really nothing you wouldn’t do to “everyday” food.  It is such a mom/busy person friendly plan.  I will be honest when I tell you I sometimes would go all day just on a cup or two (or three) of coffee and NO food while taking care of children.  It seemed like I would have good intentions to eat or make myself something but then I think to myself Oh! – I need to take care of that laundry or one of the kids need to be changed or fed or fill in the blank. You get the picture.  My husband asks me all the time how I could forget to eat or visit the ladies room or whatever it may be.  I think a lot of people can relate – man or woman.  Stay-at-home, work-at-home or anything in between.  Then once I (maybe you can relate) sat down, I would eat things that were not at all healthy OR even if they were, I’d be starving when I sat down that I would overdo it and eat more than I know I should have.

Then you know with that, guilt can set in.  So you think ‘ehhh, who cares?!”.   Well,I truly do care and now I can actually do something about it thanks to the support I am receiving from Nutrisystem.  I also need to focus on a happier and healthier ME.  Then of course, my children…they are a huge part of why I am trying my hardest to stay focused.  I want to be around for them.  They are my life.  For so long, I was depressed.  (Diagnosed with it in high school)  I feel like not only did my husband save me and add so much love to my life, that my children saved my life. Even on my most tired of days, they are my reasons I get up and face the world. I was never so depressed I would harm myself, but you know it can become pretty easy to stay under the covers each day.  It is never laziness.  It is real.  So with all of that said, this is me on my way to a healthier and happier lifestyle.
